in How do I learned to play guitar? Post #234484
Hey guys,

I need an answer to this question:

What affordable guitars do you recommend as all-rounders for beginners? Note, I said guitars because I am going to do what both of you said (try a few models at a local store).

I have seen some contradicting opinions

On the "Squire sucks/no it doesn't, some do" matter I've talked to my pops, who, although he never played guitar himself, he used to be some kind of a roadie for his friends' band, said you guys are thinking like this:

The Ferrari 380 GTS is one of the worse, if not THE worst Ferrari ever made. All the critics disliked it.
But, f**k yeah, it still rocks! After all, its a Ferrari!

The Fender "Squire" series is one of the worse, if not THE worst series Fender ever made. All the critics disliked it.
But, f**k yeah, it still rocks! After all, its a Fender!

Is he right?

He also told me not to go with cheaper guitars (like the Dean Evo XM), because even if they play well for a while, they get fucked up after a while.

Recommendations up to now:

The Squier starter pack;
Ibanez IJX121;
Peavey amp (no specific model given);

Feel free to do rebuttals!

See ya, and thank you for your help.

EDIT: Are "Jack & Danny" guitars any good?

Indeed, I want to play CoB but still be able to play dire straits, pink floyd, etc.

OK man, I'm going to get some more advice, and I'll see if I can find a bargain...

Off my budget, but christmas' donations will help.

Do you recommend this pack? Reviews are mixed...

Edit: The guitar is classified as a "metal" guitar... I'd prefer an all rounder...

Gotta get a guitar playing buddy to go to a local shop with me. Lots of them downtown. Heh, maybe I'll go there to playtest the guitars and them order them through the internets, where its cheaper.

Would you recommend using headphones to play guitar? I'm pretty sure most amps have a line out for headphones...

Electric acoustics are kind of expensive, a bit off my budget... Any bargains?

So, from what I've read, you believe the Ibanez is superior to the dean?

Of course. I have currently ?500 I can use for this, but I don't want to spend all my money on sth. I don't know if i will get tired with.

I live in an apartment block, so I definitely don't want it to be loud... Just loud enough so I can hear it.

Thanks everyone for your help!

I have a tuner here, no need :D!

$200, you say? I'll look into those. The pack is Guitar + Amp? What do you think of this pack, Tetsu0? Because you said squiers suck and all.

Aw, man, thanks a lot, srsly, but I already know how to read tab bro! But thanks for the effort in trying to teach a random internet person stuff, it shows you are probably helpful IRL. I also... acquired... Guitar Pro a while back. What guitars would you recommend as all-rounders? I want to be able to play dire straits and children of bodom, you know? :D. Is a 10~12 W amp not enough? I've been seeing some peaveys and they have acceptable prices.

@all of you: Any specific comments on the guitar models I mentioned in the OP?

Dear sirs/madams,

I have become quite interested in learning to play the "guitar" instrument.

Now, seriously, I know that there's sum musicians in the house.
How did you guys learn to play the guitar? I have a cheap maxtone classical guitar (its a child's guitar, I am 16 now, I find it quite hard to play , since the neck is kinda small), and am looking for a better guitar. No more classical guitars, I want either an acoustic or electric guitar. I'm on a very tight budget (ideal spending would be <?200).
Recommend me some:
Acoustic guitars;
Electric guitars + Amp.

Also, it'd be nice if you told me which one you prefer, and why.

The guitars I've been looking at:
Dean EVO XM (~?100) + some of those roland microcube amps (~?75)
Ibanez AW40NT (acoustic; and a bit off budget, but this is some good shit: ~?250)

It would be cool if you guys posted sum fukken tips (how did you learn, etc etc)

Then you agree with me that you are just talking about/believing things you cannot prove?

Sounds like religion if you think about it.
I'm not suggesting anyone revolt against the Government. Anarchy is not the solution, it only ever leads to more problems.
I never said you were trying to turn us into anarchists, what I said was that you were giving us POVs that make one turn against the CURRENT government by the way they are managing things.

PS: I am from Portugal, but when shit hits the fan in the US, it generally also happens in other countries, even if with some delay.

Jahzel, you didn't answer him. We have seen you talk the talk, but can you walk the walk? And don't answer "I am doing my part by informing y'all", what I mean is, have you ever been in a rally? Are you the (co-)founder of any organization?

I believe this is a serious case of "do as I say, not like I do".

I think some of the theories you support aren't crap. But, I also see you telling us to revolt against the government (not directly, but since you know so much about brain washing and mind control, you'll know what I mean :)), while doing nothing yourself.

From wikipedia's article, "Scientology beliefs and practices", section "The tone scale:
Later this scale was expanded to represent spiritual states that go beyond human manifestation. These states are represented with the values from negative forty (-40) to forty (40). Forty represents "Serenity of Beingness" and negative forty represents what is best described as "Epic" failure.

in Buying a laptop for UNi Post #231652
Doesn't your government help you with technological wares purchases? MAybe you should inform yourself. Here in Portugal, the government, thanks to a M$/HP/PT Gov't deal is selling laptops to high schoolers for really low prices. Furthermore, they give you a discount on Internets.

If your gov't doesn't, come live here :D
No, srsly, what srry said. You'd spend a lot less money and would get better quality if you get a desktop PC. Of course, no open space/cafeteria studying and no STYLE ++ bonus...
